Walk-In Lab recognizes that our customers value their privacy. However, in order to conduct business in this increasingly electronic economy, the collection of personal information is often necessary. Walk-In Lab's goal is to balance the benefits of e-commerce with customers’ rights to prevent the misuse of their personal information.
Collection of Personal Information
In general, you can visit our website without divulging any personal information. However, if you order laboratory tests, Walk-In Lab and our partner labs require certain personal information from you such as your name, email address, telephone number and date of birth. Additionally, Walk-In Lab may use this information for other business purposes, such as alerting you to future promotions and services that may be of benefit to your understanding of certain laboratory tests.
Confidential Lab Records
Walk-In Lab recognizes the sensitivity of personal health information and utilizes encryption/security software to safeguard its confidentiality. This software protects the personal information we collect from unauthorized access or disclosure and accidental loss, alteration or destruction. All lab orders and results reports are uploaded to each customer’s Confidential Lab Record on our secure server. Reports are only mailed or faxed at the customer’s request and printed copies are not retained. Under no circumstances will this information be made available to third parties such as insurance carriers or representatives of any healthcare provider without our customer’s prior consent.
To process your order, Walk-In Lab requires payment by Visa, MasterCard, Discover, American Express, Health Savings Cards, PayPal, ACH, or Apple Pay. When you enter personal credit card or checking information on our website, our secure gateway encrypts the information. Walk-In Lab has no access to your financial information.
Walk-In Lab has partnered with Braintree, a subsidiary of PayPal and leading payment gateway, ensuring safe and secure credit card processing. Braintree services include an optional Vault to securely store customer information and payment methods. Customers enjoy the peace of mind that comes with knowing their information is secure and the added convenience of not having to re-enter their information each time a purchase is made. When a payment method is stored in the Vault, the information is encrypted by the Braintree gateway and associated with a unique payment method token.
Collecting Internet Information
Walk-In Lab collects Internet Protocol (IP) addresses and domain information as part of our analysis of website use. This data enables us to become more familiar with customers that visit our site, how often they visit, and what parts of the site they visit most often. Walk-In Lab uses this information to improve our web-based offerings. This information is collected automatically and requires no action on your part.
In the event you choose to correspond with us by email, we may retain the content of your email messages together with your email address and our responses. Other email that you may send to us may not be secure unless we advise you that security measures will be in place prior to your transmitting the information. We provide the same protection for these electronic communications that we employ in the maintenance of information received by mail, telephone or fax.
